If you have a smell like rotten eggs you have a hydrogen sulfide problem which you can treat in two ways you can add on a carbon filter that regenerates with either chlorine recomended or an airator system which you will smell on the side of your house you can have your hydrogen sulfide checked to see how many parts per million yuou have in your water

Foul Odor


Odor from the water softening system can be attributed to several causes.
The best way to see if it is coming from the softener is to by-pass the softener and run the COLD water only for several minutes and see if the smell continues. Now run the HOT water and see if smell is coming from the water heater.
Some causes may be:
1. Hydrogen sulfide in the water supply (the water chemistry can change)
2. Sulfate reducing bacteria. Almost all water supplies have sulfates and if bacteria gets introduced into the plumbing system it acts with the sulfates to create sulfate reducing bacteria. Which creates a rotten egg smell in the water.
3. Salt additives can have many different affects on water chemistry and organics in the water causing musty, fishy, swampy type smells.
4. If you have a system for Tannins using salts with additives will always cause foul smells as it harms the Tannin media.
5. The ANODE rod in the water heater degrades and gives off a sulfur type, rotten egg smell.

My sister pours a lot of liquid softener into our Kenmore Elite front load dispenser. I said to only use 1/4 cup as recommended. Will using too much fabric softener cause problems?


YES!! This machine uses an average of 14 gallons of water per load as compared to 40 gallons for a top load!! Less water means less detergents!! Excess detergent and softener can create build up withing the machine that will cause unpleasant odors and eventually rear bearing failure.

Softener WG 844 needs flushing to remove dirt


If there is DIRT/SEDIMENT coming through system then you have a bigger problem. Well problems! Bypass the softener and run water into white bucket to see if it is coming from well. If so keep unit bypassed and call well man. The call Culligan to rebed softener.

The washer emits a foul odor when washer first


You have the beginning of a detergent and/or softener residue buildup on the inside of the plastic outer drum of your clothes washing machine. Mold and bacteria need a moist, dark environment and a food source to grow. This residue is the food source. This can be a major health concern. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5408971n

We can't change the environment of the washer but we can lessen the "food source" by reducing detergent and fabric softener use.
Do an internet search on "Smelly Washer Reviews" to see what you can do about the problem of mold odor in your washer, towels and clothing.
After your washer odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits so mold and bacteria don't return. Go to the blog page at smellywasher.com to read the featured posts on the left side of the page on the cause of the problem and what to do for extreme cases of washer mold odor.

Foul odors


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Check down the edge of the door seal, see if there is a lot of "gunk" there, this would cause grey marks on laundry. If it is a front load washer then try these steps--

You'll have to do a few maintenance washes to clear it out of the tub.Try these steps to remove the dirt, debris and odor from the washer—


Set your machine to 60 degree wash.
  1. Now add 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking sodaCrystals and run the machine with no clothes in it.
  2. Your drain will sparkle, and it will remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. Also the mold from the door seal will be cleared
  3. Add 1 desert spoonful of Washing Soda to every wash... I sprinkle it along the crease in the door seal.
  4. Clean the fabric softener cup with a rag first, (bleach will not break up fabric softener as it is introduced in the rinse cycle with the fabric softener.
  5. Also check the drain hose, it should not be clogged.

This will clean your machine and get rid of the odor.
And, if it’s a top load washer then try these steps—

Remove the dispenser and spray with white vinegar. Then spray the agitator with it too. You can pretty much wipe it right out. Vinegar dissolves softener very quickly. The dispenser just wash out with warm water after the vinegar sits on it for a minute, and you hardly have to wipe at it at all. try adding bleach to the dispenser and clean it with a small brush.

The dispenser will pull off from the agitator and you can run hot water in it from the sink. The agitator is not as easy but has a 1/2" bolt holding it to the shaft. remove the bolt and pull up. but you can clean the whole washer with a cup of bleach and that will also clean the agitator. Now run a full tub of hot water and then add a cup of bleach with no soap. After the washer has filled up, then add another gallon of hot water and that will help to rinse out the residues that cause odors. then after that dont use too much soap and you wont have residue build up. Only use the smallest amount of soap that the cup has marked in it.



Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Odors on the clothes after washing in Maytag front loader


The brand of your front loader is not that material on this issue. What is happening is that your old top load washer may have used as much as 45 gallons of water per cycle, while some front loaders use as little as 12. Because of the low water use, you must cut back on the additives you are using. Use only 1 tablespoon of HE detergent (even less if 2x or 3x detergent) per load. If you use fabric softener, use only 1 teaspoon per load. Odor on clothes after wash is indicating that the detergent and or softener has not been fully rinsed out. If you throw a load of washed towels into your machine and start a cycle without any soap, then stop the cycle, you should not see any suds. If you do, there is obviously soap left in the clothes. With bath towels, the towels are used to absorb clean water off a clean body. They do not need soap when you wash them, and never use fabric softener on towels.

Odor when starting cycle


Check your water softener(If so equipped). This can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained. Good luck!
